Morning Coffee & Afternoon Tea

Imagine enjoying a relaxing morning coffee or afternoon tea in the English summertime, al fresco, under dappled shade at pretty white wrought iron tables and chairs watching the boats go by; you might even see a duck or two wandering up from the river. Or, in autumn and winter, the thought of a cosy sofa and the warmth of a ‘crackling’ log fire in The Drawing Room. Perfect either way! Minimum age 8 years (unless by special arrangement).

Morning Coffee

Enjoy a most welcome mid-morning coffee break in the comfort of The Drawing Room; or The River Terrace on fine days. We offer a blend of freshly brewed classic coffee and the Italian favourites Cappuccino, Latte and Espresso, all are served with a delicious choice of Danish pastries, shortbread biscuits or cake.  Minimum age 8 years (unless by special arrangement).




Our ‘Morning Coffee’ menu starts at £4.95.

Afternoon Tea

Enjoy the tradition of Afternoon Tea at The Priory, served in relaxed comfort of either The Drawing Room or The River Terrace in summertime; Our Afternoon Tea Menu is simply too tempting to resist from a pot a tea for two with homemade shortbread biscuits to a ‘Priory Ritzy Tea’ which can be taken with a glass of Prosecco or Champagne, if so desired. Minimum age 8 years (unless by special arrangement).

Guest Comments from TripAdvisor


“Wareham wonder.”

“In the 36 years that we have been visiting, absolutely nothing has changed at this hotel, including many of the staff. There has to be a reason, and I think it’s all to do with the pace of life, relaxation and enjoyment.”
